A truly divine raised ground floor one bedroom flat with share of freehold, which has an achingly beautiful interior and fantastic internal space which is distributed across the entire raised ground floor of THAT magnificent, detached period building, which happens to be on one of Crystal Palace’s prettiest roads!
You’ll excuse us for the excitement on this one, as flats like this are so rare to the market, especially in this location and being near the bottom of Gatestone Road, the flat is literally moments from the Triangle (and the incredible farmer’s market!).
Once you’re past the charming entrance and have finished gawking at the beautiful doors and are inside, you’ll be taken with the interior and the amount of beautiful features in the flat, especially in the living room, it’s got immensely high ceilings, painted wood floors, a very special fireplace which is quite unique and those floor to ceiling windows which open outwards which is something you don’t find very often.
Moving along the hall, adjacent to the living room is a lovely kitchen which has been well thought out, there’s no shortage of worktop space or storage and most appliances are integrated; there’s an integrated gas hob, built in oven, dishwasher and free-standing washing machine.
To the rear of the flat is a rather magnificent bedroom with dual sash windows (double glazed in wooden frames no less – which are eye wateringly expensive) which have a very pretty view over the garden, the ceiling height is impressive and allows the room to house large wardrobes without feeling at all cramped. The bedroom faces west and gets the afternoon and evening sun, ideal for those lazy weekend mornings.
The bathroom is a good size room and has a shower over a full-size bath, like the rest of the flat its finished beautifully, the wall and floor tiles are stunning and there is a large sash window too which the bathroom fittings and the period-style radiator complement really well.
Just off the bathroom is a massive storage cupboard which is incredibly useful, there is also an “unofficial” storage space on the landing in the communal hallway, which whilst not in this flat’s demise is there to be used by it.
The flat has a Share of Freehold and thus there are no charges as such, the council tax is band C which is circa £1230 PA.
Location wise Westow Street, Westow Hill & Church Road which form Crystal Palace’s celebrated “Triangle”, are seconds away and you really are spoilt for choice with restaurants, cafes, pubs, and even an Everyman Cinema on the Triangle! There’s yoga schools, coffee shops galore and the list goes on! There is also a Sainsbury’s supermarket 0.1mi away and the wonderful Crystal Palace Food Market on Haynes Lane which operates every Saturday offering the best from small sustainable farmers and local food producers, it’s a real delight to have this almost opposite your home, you’ll look forward to Saturday mornings even more living so close to it!
Both Gipsy Hill & Crystal Palace Stations are close (0.5mi & 0.8mi respectively), giving access to London Bridge & Victoria as well as the city, Shoreditch and East London. Crystal Palace Park is also close by, which offers 200 acres of grade 2 listed grounds to enjoy, it also houses the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre with its Olympic swimming pool, a gym, squash courts and a few activities you wouldn’t find at your average gym including trampolining, beach volleyball and an on-site physio.
